Hi guys,

I'm trying to install Ubuntu 8.04 on a OCZ Core Series OCZSSD2-1C64G solid state drive.
When I boot into the live CD and try installing the partition manager cannot find my drive.  I googled the problem, but did not find anything related.  Any ideas on how to solve this problem?  Thanks.

Link to drive I'm using.

What is your pc model/motherboard? Try to install xp or vista, does it see the drive? Can you install 8.04 on regular hd in your system? Also since 8.10 is now out, try it and see what happens.

I installed Windows XP Pro on it.  I'm trying to do a dual  boot.  I'm trying Ubuntu 8.10, I'll let you know what happens.
